Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from March 9, 2017 Options

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

A pledge of $75 or more will net you my premium, cover at the top of the page: Madness – The Feast of the Drum. A collection of percussive ritual sorcery, imitation voodoo, bongo fetishisms, ethnographic hallucinations, the rare authentic, and throbbing mysteries from exotica's jungle night imaginary. African drumming packaged as exotica, exotica packaged as ethnographic document, and all the ambiguities and fever dreams in between.

$20 or more and you're in the running for all these other goodies, many on LP if you're into that. I am!

Avatar Thu. 3/9/17 8:27pm Flash Strap:

It's such a crazy movie! I really can't say enough about what a brilliant, twisted performance Laughton puts down. He reclines, heftily and very louche, on a gurney and proclaims his hubris and makes of it a greatest-of-all-time acting moment instead of another villain monologue (which it is, but still)

Oddly I was listening to an old episode of Gilbert Gottfrieds podcast today and they talked about the woeful remake of Island of Lost Souls w/ Brando and Val Kilmer.
Avatar    Thu. 3/9/17 8:43pm hyde:

there's a cool looking hour long thing on Vimeo by Steven Feld that has Ghanaba aka Guy Warren doing an African drum version of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. The rest of it is an interview with him. Looks promising: vimeo.com...
Avatar Thu. 3/9/17 8:44pm Flash Strap:

I actually love that version as well, MN Jeff! Brando is savage in it, and Kilmer is so cruel in imitating him! I watch it all the time, haha

it is pretty awful in a lot of ways, esp. the 3rd act
Avatar Thu. 3/9/17 8:44pm Gary:

Whoa, vocals?
Avatar    Thu. 3/9/17 8:45pm hyde:

there's a documentary about the making of that Lost Souls remake, but i haven't seen it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/9/17 8:46pm Minnesota Jeff:

It had a notorious production, evan. Director changes mid-production, Brando re-writing the script, Kilmer deciding requesting his role be diminished by 60%, etc
Avatar Thu. 3/9/17 8:46pm Flash Strap:

Aw shucks, Gary!

Gotta see that, Hyde!
Avatar Thu. 3/9/17 8:48pm Flash Strap:

@Gary, re: vocals - yeah! right? just plain and serious one of my favorite songs, ever.

@Jeff: Oh boy, I know! I'd love to see the thing that could have been, but as it stands it's one of the most engrossing failures there is

Thanks, C.! They're nominally quakers, so the hope is that they'll carry it forward into life for actual real. who knows, mileage varies

Brothers and sisters , I wanna see a sea of pledges out there... I want everybody to kick up some cash , I wanna hear some revolution... Brothers and sisters , the time has come for each and every one of you to decide whether you are going to be the problem or you are going to be the solution! You must choose , brothers , you must choose. It takes five seconds , five seconds of decision , five seconds to realize your purpose here on the planet. It takes five seconds to realize that its time to move , it's time to get down with it. Brothers , it's time to pledge. And I want to know - are you ready to pledge ? Are you ready !! I give you a testimonial. GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO !!

ive donated a mouse pledge tonight and dedicated it to the whole station but thought it would show up in your account. you've played brilliant shows recently. GDR stream has become equally important to me just as the main stream. global grease, bodega ifyoulooseyourhorse and others...man im totally hooked..sorry the money didnt occur on your account.cheers to you and everyone from djs to volunteers

Avatar Thu. 3/9/17 9:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Never a worry, slawooy. it all goes into the same steaming cauldron of love. The Drummer Stream is utterly thrilled to bring such wonders as this.

EXPLORERS ROOM IS ONLY $124 AWAY FROM THE GOAL. Go go go go go come come come come and pledge: pledge.wfmu.org...
Avatar Thu. 3/9/17 9:56pm Gary:

One last pledge! pledge.wfmu.org...
  Thu. 3/9/17 9:56pm Dean:

I can't even *listen* right now, but I thought you ought to know how the comments read independent of the audio. There's UM talking about "it takes five seconds," and Gary proclaiming, "So close...," and Doug talking about a "steaming cauldron of love," and I'm suddenly wondering whether WFMU has gone full hard-core.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/9/17 9:57pm coelacanth∅:

i wish i could pledge twice this program. last year i went to 280 or 300... (beyond my s4L). i might as well've done a mouse. i don't know yet if that's even close to possible this year.
